    One of the finest poets I have had the pleasure of discovering on PoemHunter.

    Lillian, I must admit I was impressed by your
    work. You have a wonderful way of drawing
    the reader in.

    Very nice.

The Lost Language

When I gave myself to him,
It was the perfect rhyme of couplets.
He: the smack of consonants against teeth and lips;
And I was all the vowels in long sighs and high-pitched pleasure.
The words we formed now buzz in the silence,
Almost audible in this empty apartment, humming me to sleep.
A lost tongue never to be spoken again -
No matter how many tongues of how many lovers
Touch so lightly this skin again
